In Greek mythology, Daedalion was a son of Hesperus and brother of Ceyx. He is described as a cruel and warlike man. His daughter Chione was so beautiful that both Apollo and Hermes impregnated her. She then became vain and boasted that she was more beautiful than Artemis. When Artemis killed her in revenge, Daedalion was so grief-stricken that he threw himself off a cliff at Mt. Parnassos, and Apollo turned him into a hawk (Ovid XI, 291).
